Do your kids make up words? Or try really really hard to pronounce words and still don't quite get there.
Well, lately I've been catching myself out using my kids words instead of the Proper English.
Oh dear. Not a good teacher am I?
I play along, as their little language can be so damn cute, funny and entertaining that sometimes I think I prefer their words to proper English. That, and it makes them laugh.
Take my son - inventor of new words, and lately when it's "time to go" I find myself yelling out "let's gok" as that is what he made up! But it doesn't stop there.....
When it's time for "breakfast" - it so much cuter when my daughter asks for "bwekfrast"
Which is then followed up by a request for a "bay-chee" rather than the usual "baby cino"
There is "drunkfood" instead of "junkfood", which i think is just hilarious
or "wallpaper" vs "toilet paper" (but, it is on the wall mummy!)
Even the italian word for cheese "formagio" has been hijacked and re-arranged into "bobbagino" - dont even ask!
The "tee-pee" has been renamed the "tee-pit" as I can't be bothered correcting that one....
then there is "spell" for "smell"
and my favourite at the moment would be my daughters name for the humble "tracksuit"....."suit-jacks"
Do you correct your children's pronunciations? What cute words have they come up with??
Or do you play along like I do?
Hmmm.... time to get into action and find my inner Mr Higgins......
